Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
For online tutoring, I will make arrangements as to when the student wishes for their session to start and finish. I will arrange the length of the session and whether students want to be taught individually or in a group situation, whether the students are together in the same environment, or by interacting from an interactive online network.

I have a flexible and negotiated approach which I use to deliver the topic in terms of teaching and assessment and the visual aids the learners will need.

My teacher training was at Greenwich University on a distance learning basis. I achieved a PGCE.

Do you have a personal message for students?
I always welcome students to my tutoring either on an individual or a group basis. My role is to ensure that students feel comfortable and relaxed during my teaching and will negotiate with students with regard to their needs and what topic areas they wish me to deliver. I have been doing private tuition for a number of years and met a range of students from a variety of backgrounds and ages. I have gained much experience in delivering the lesson to tailor the needs of individual students.
